She was a 1941 graduate of Thorp High School and went on to Gregg Business College in Chicago where she obtained a degree in accounting. Angie was employed by a stove company and then went on to work in the credit department for Englander Mattress Company. Union Carbide later purchased Englander and Angie continued in their credit department to ultimately become a credit analyst, handling many of the commercial farm accounts in the south.

During her professional career, she was a continuous member of the National Association of Credit Managers serving on their board for many years and as their national president during 1986 and 1987.

She also served in the Auxiliary of the VFW in Park Ridge, Illinois where she was very active. Angie was a continuous member there for 39 years and served as their president in 1967 and 1968. In their larger organization, the 4th VFW District, Angie served over the years as the secretary and treasurer from 1968 to 1985.

She retired from Union Carbide in 1989 and returned to live in Thorp in 1993. After returning to Thorp, Angie was a member of the Thorp Historical Society and served as president, was a very active member of the Thorp American Legion Auxiliary and served as secretary, was a member of the Thorp Alumni Association and Thorp Lioness Club.
